Explaining the gold price after the Bretton Woods Agreement by Stefan Heini

By Stefan Heini

Master's Thesis from the 12 months 2014 within the topic Economics - Finance, grade: 1.7, collage of Leicester (Center of Management), language: English, summary: up to now, not anyone has formulated a complete theorem to figure out gold valuation or priceless steel costs. until eventually rather lately, Eugene Fama’s effective marketplace speculation was once the important paradigm explaining asset markets yet at the present time it's extensively said that markets could be irrational and traders are susceptible to act irrationally. whilst attempting to clarify gold marketplace anomalies, behavioural technological know-how ways should be invaluable. Phenomena reminiscent of herding (‘group think’), ‘safe price bias’ and traders’ ‘excessive extrapolation’ may also help clarify confident rate functionality over a definite time.

In this dissertation, the writer investigates the applicability of a multivariate ARIMA (auto-regressive, built-in, relocating standard) version to aid clarify gold fee activities from 1973 to 2011. This version makes use of the gold cost and self reliant variables akin to inflation, actual rates of interest, silver costs, the USA greenback cash provide (M2), oil costs, the MSCI international index and the S&P 500 as those are associated with gold and/or hugely correlated with the gold expense. The assessment standards have been outlined as R-squared, suggest absolute percent blunders (MAPE) and BIC. The version was once calculated over so-called ‘normal occasions’ and occasions of crises (one political, one financial). The researcher used SPSS’ professional Modeler to discover the best-fitting ARIMA version and to spot the self sufficient variables considerably contributing to the healthy of the version. Remarkably, a multivariate ARIMA version utilizing autonomous variables defined nearly two times as a lot of the range of the gold fee as a univariate ARIMA version utilizing merely the gold cost. additionally, during the entire interval and through general occasions the version defined a miles greater percent of the range of the gold rate than in the course of crises and comparably extra of the self reliant variables contributed considerably to the healthy of the version (5 vs. 2). this is often defined by way of traders’ trends to shop for gold to maintain their resources (“safe value”), to keep on with the group (“herding”) and to extrapolate earlier expense chart developments.

The effects exhibit that during an try to determine the reason for gold rate activities, a multivariate ARIMA version outperforms a univariate ARIMA version considerably. the result of the research in addition point out researchers comparing diverse the way to healthy a time sequence may still think about a multivariate ARIMA version, in particular if the self sufficient variables are hugely correlated with the based variable.
